I found out from my father today that my mother is in the hospital w/ pneumonia. Apparently my niece had contracted strep shortly before my parents arrival, and my mom caught it. On top of that, she had been invited to speak in Washington D.C. regarding healthcare reform. So a few days after flying from Nevada to Wisconsin, she boarded a plane to DC, despite being sick as a dog. ( Crazy, I know, but my mother is extremely passionate about the subject and felt this was an opportunity she couldn't pass up). All the travel and strain was too much for her, and less than 24 hours after returning to Wisconsin, she found herself in the ER. It breaks my heart. Because the hospital has her in isolation, she won't be able to spend time with her grandkids. Any healing energy you all could send in her direction would be greatly appreciated.

Giant buckets of concern, positive thoughts and prayers coming your way! Your mother truly sounds like a lovely so sorry that she's ailing. Here's hoping that she rebounds immediately! Try not to worry, Allison...she sounds like a very strong person. Hugs to you both!

So all that work and she didn't even get to give her speech? That's a shame.

Your request will be put on our prayer list, and we'll be praying for her and for your family. That's some heavy burden there that I'm sorry you guys are having to deal with.

Thankyou everyone for your prayers and healing energy. And to clarify, my mother actually did give her speech, despite barely being able to talk. That's the amazing, determined, resilient, passionate human being that she is. She means the world to me, as does the support of all of you pulling for her here on the island. Thanks again, one and all.

So glad to hear that, Allison! Thought that's what you meant, and so relieved it's true.

Hang in there, Girl! Have a very good feeling about all of this!
